Challenge 2 - Innovations to Support Reopening

 

Challenge Goal

Help Massachusetts companies pivot their operations to produce innovations that support reopening processes.  We welcome any innovation that can support one or more of the following re-opening directives, as well as other directives found at https://www.mass.gov/info-details/reopening-when-can-my-business-reopen.

 

Program Overview

Companies will be selected for a five-week acceleration toward a new or expanded capacity to produce goods and services in support of the state’s re-opening. Priority will be given to companies that have the potential to deliver solutions at scale in a short period of time.

During the challenge program, intrapreneurs will develop prototype(s), business plans, market analysis, and go-to-market strategies. On August 21, intrapreneurs will present their plans to a panel of experts. This panel will select one team to receive a $25,000 COVID Intrapreneur Challenge grant award.

Although just one team will win the Challenge, all participating companies will benefit from the COVID Intrapreneur Challenge program. Participants will have access to manufacturing know-how, to various domain experts, to raw material providers, and to prospective purchasers.
